Bullet Journal Update #1

Hello Hello! This year I decided I wanted to keep a bullet journal. I have started experimenting with different layouts, colors, and designs, but I am not done yet. I think that’s what I love most about bullet journaling, is there is an endless number of creative things I can do with it.

I got a few comments about people wanting to see what I decided to do with mine, so I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite spreads and pages I’ve been working on.

I have only gotten to March so far, but I thought I would share another update later on so you can see what else I decide to do with my bullet journal this year.

My quote for the year is “Grow through what you go through.” I feel like it has great significance, especially right now in my life, because instead of letting things others say or do weigh me down and keep me from progressing, I can take their actions and absorb them as experiences to learn from, to help me thrive and grow. It also goes along the lines of “Let that sh*t go” but this is a little more poetic.


This is one of the spreads I have at the beginning of my bullet journal that are just things to keep track of. Big blog ideas and goals, and places I want to go, which is actually a lot, but I kept it small because this is only a year, and trips aren’t free (unfortunately).


I decided to write one of my favorite quotes on each spread, just to keep me grounded and inspired.

“Your soul is your best friend. Treat it with care, nurture it with growth, feed it with love.” — Ashourina Yalda


This was the first spread that I really went all out on being super creative with. I saw something similar to this on Pinterest, which if you want to see my journaling board, feel free to follow along as I become even more obsessed with this, but anyways, I thought this was so cute so and I had to put my own spin on it.


“Stick with the people who pull the magic out of you, not the madness.”


I really love how my Valentine’s Day spread came out. It’s just enough festive, but not too crazy, at least I don’t think it is. It’s just very pink.

“But she did look back, and I love her for that because it was so human.” — From Slaughterhourse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

I’d love to see some of your bullet journal spreads! Let’s inspire each other. Happy journaling!

If you’d like to take a look at the journal I’m using, I bought it on Amazon and you can find it here.

Thanks for stopping by,

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words!😊 I’m so glad you’re going to stick around! I was just reading a couple of your posts and you put together wonderful content that I loved reading! I can’t wait to see what comes next from you!✨

  1. This is lovely I love your design! What keeps you motivated to keep on bullet journaling? I’ve tried it before but it never works out for me, maybe it’s just one of those things x x

    1. Thank you so much! I don’t know, it’s pretty hard to keep up with it, I love planners, but I’m not good at using one everyday. It’s something fun to do so I feel like it is something to look forward to instead of something to keep me on task. It’s more of a creative way to track my year is how I look at it.

  2. I think your spread is pretty nice! I still haven’t got hold of a dotted grid journal where did you get yours from? I hope I can get one and prepare for February at least. Love the quotes through the pages it is always good to keep ourselves inspired. <3

    1. Thank you for commenting! I love my journal! I actually found it on Amazon for about $10, which I might add the link to my post just so people know, thanks for asking! I hope you find one in time! I’m so glad you like the quotes, a little daily/weekly motivation never hurt anyone 🙂
